Creating the Digital Art Library, 2013 Edition

This monograph profiles the digitization efforts of eight North American university art, architecture, and design libraries. Conducted in the summer of 2013, the interviews shed light on a wide range of programs and initiatives, exploring the challenges library heads have faced and the successes they have experienced in digitizing their collections. Interview subjects open up concerning their digitization endeavors, including what's being digitized, and covering their experiences with digital image collections such as ARTstor, the challenges of digitizing in-house against the prospect of outsourcing such work, potential licensing and copyright issues, marketing the library's digital collections via social media, equipment and staff matters, prioritizations, and more. The results represent a broad spectrum of digitization efforts in art libraries today, from the newly-initiated to the well-seasoned veteran.

Just a few brief comments from report participants are:
- "[Digitizing the university's literary and arts journal] has been a huge success and has taken on a life of its own. It's opened up the campus publication to be truly representative of the campus." -Bob Matuozzi, READ MORE >
